Sarahfest Art Show: Crossing Borders


  • Powerhouse - Yoknapatawpha Arts Council 413 South 14th Street Oxford, MS, 38655 United States (map)

Both of this year’s featured artists celebrate the idea of what it means to cross borders. Lee Harper traverses historical timelines and moments as she constructs dioramas about real historical figures using bones from her yard to tell their story. Her work invites us to learn about the past and to confront the abject at the same time. She is joined by local photographer Megan Wolfe, who returned to Mississippi after eleven years in San Francisco. With a past life in professional fine art work, Wolfe finds her favorite stories highlight the pursuit of mastery through craft, concept, and challenging audience perception. Together, they kick off our fall calendar with a month long exhibit of their work at the Powerhouse Community Center in September.
